Mount Evans was supposed to be my big confidence builder for the Triple Bypass...and then I blew it. I turned back 10 miles from the summit. I keep wondering if I had pushed on would it have gotten easier once my food kicked in, did I need a longer rest, more water...
All Mount Evans truly did for me was show me my diet is not adequate for long distance, high intensity rides.
That's a good lesson, but there isn't enough time now to learn what I did wrong and find the right solution. I put off the big stuff too long.
So I am going to try my best to fuel up for Saturday and try to put the unridden ten miles out of my mind.
